Description of problem:
Current altas spec doesn't build for ppc64. This breaks a number of downstream
packages (specifically numpy and its dependencies). Support might be as simple as:

If you'd like, I'd be happy to commit this and submit a test build.
By the way, wouldn't it be preferred to link numpy et al. be to lapack & blas so
that atlas is optional rather than mandatory?
Indeed, it looks like numpy in CVS has dropped the atlas-devel requirement, but
it just hasn't been built. I've filed a bug to ping the maintainer.
I've checked in an built the changes (3.6.0-12) and it compiled fine on ppc64.
Hopefully it actually works.
